Okay, actually it’s called an “Orange Fizzy”, but it’s basically an orange smoothie. And boy, oh boy is it yummy!

Strawberry Shortcake made this recipe from her Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cool Kids’ Cooking book. BTW, it is a great cookbook for kids, there are tons of yummy, but easy recipes to make! It’s a great gift idea too!



  • 2 cups orange juice  (We like Sunny D, I know it’s not real orange juice, but it’s good!)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 Ice cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! Serve with your favorite breakfast, or have as a mid-day snack!



  1. Here is a great recipe for an Orange Julius.
    1/2 can frozen orange juice concentrate
    1 c. water
    1 c. milk
    1/2 cup sugar or less to taste
    dab of vanilla
    fill to top with ice cubes.

    Also not a big fan of Sunny D. It’s the modern day Tang :o)

  2. Yum! I just purchased the cookbook as well because it looked like it was not too overwhelming for the little one’s to practice a little kitchen independence. Thanks. We seriously could not do all that we do homeschool wise without your creative ideas. 🙂

  3. Sounds so yummy! My daughters will love making this to help out with breakfast & snack time!
    The cookbook sounds like a good idea for a birthday gift, my oldest has a birthday this month!
    Thanks for sharing all the great blog post. You have been a great blessing to my homeschool family! 🙂
